Brixen to Riva Self-guided Cycling Tour

This bicycle tour starts at the foot of the Dolomites, at the highest point of the Pustertal valley. Beautiful and partly new bike paths lead along the rivers Rienz, Eisack, and Adige to Rovereto. From there, you will cycle to the northern shore of Lake Garda. Some towns with their arcades still show the typical Tyrolean style. In Trentino, the Tyrolean style is mixed with Italian influences. Monasteries, cathedrals, and castles are located along the way. In Bolzano the oldest Tyrolean, Ötzi, the man from the ice, is waiting for your visit. Lake Garda offers not only an impressive view, but also many opportunities for relaxation after this comfortable cycling tour.
